"All I want to do is shake my turban." - Peter Singh

Check out this short documentary about a Sikh Elvis impersonator in England called, ” Rocking With a Sikh” and produced in 1986.

And after you are done watching that - read this 1990 NYT article:

Peter Singh, an Indian whose Sikh religion requires him to wear a turban, recalled how Elvis Presley came to him in a dream in 1980 to say, ”You’re the next one.”

”Elvis said I would entertain millions of people,” the 43-year-old Mr. Singh said with a Welsh lilt before a recent performance at a community center in West London, ”and that I would be wearing a white suit. Three weeks later, I had the white suit. Now I’m the rocking Sikh. I don’t smoke dope. I don’t drink bourbon. All I want to do is shake my turban.”

War of the Words: Rap Battles in Nepal

My instinct within the first ten seconds of listening to this track was to hate it. The song title "Wigidi Wac" was so problematic and the video couldn’t be more cliched. But one minute into it, I was like heroin addict fiending for more. I loved the how the production samples heavily from 90s throwbacks. I love how parts of the video are filmed on the streets of Pakistan. I love Adil Omar’s deadpan flow.


I checked out the TMVSC (short for "The Miami Vice Sound Crack" and hailing from LA) album over at bandcamp - the WAC TAPE - and I absolutely love how 90s it all sounds with the fantastic samples and that new millennial twist. And, of course, an ill flow from all the folks rapping on this.
